Probably the fastest descent in the Rattlesnake. Pull out the rigid for some old school fun. This descent is smooth, fast and flowy the entire way down. Watch out for hikers and mountain bikers riding back up

Access Info

If climbing up to the overlook there is a sign marked Ravine on the left. Or you can park at the Ravine trail-head near the Snowbowl turn off a couple miles up Grant creek road.

      Large tree down across trail, blocking trail near the top. Light ice here and there but the larch needle aid in traction. Overall, pretty decent.

      Large tree blocking trail at lower section, but visible from further up the trail so shouldn't be too much of a speed hazard while descending....
